Welcome to "2013 Peer Assessment."  For now, the main focus of this blog is to highlight student projects.  This is both an opportunity to give props to those that deserve it as well as drive up attention for projects that benefit from it.

Anybody in the class has the opportunity to nominate either themselves or others to be showcased.  In the evening of each day,

So what do you have to do?

Step 1:
Have your project online.  This can be in any form you choose, as long as you can provide links that will give a full picture (or adequate summary) of what your project is.  The easiest way to do this is by writing up a quick overview of the project on your blog.

Step 2:
Send an email to 2013peerassessment@gmail.com with links to your project.  All these links will be compiled and posted on this blog.

Step 3:
Submit your blog for spotlights.  This can be done either through a comment on the Submissions Page, or an email to 2013peerassessment@gmail.com.  Do this before 5:00 PM.  From 6:00 PM-10:00 PM, the day's nominations will be put up for voting.  If you can't make the nomination cut at 5:00, don't worry; your submission will simply be moved over to the next day.

Step 4:
Vote!  Wednesday's spotlight will be chosen without voting just to get the system started, but you can vote for Thursday's spotlight.  At 6:00 PM, check the right side bar to vote!

This system will continue for the few remaining days left in the year.  We're not exactly sure how the scheduling will work out, so if it turns out to be hectic (or nominations are too slow to come in), the periods for nominations and voting will likely be extended.  Of course, this is all totally optional.  If there is a lack of nominations or votes, projects of note will still be showcased on this blog -- they'll just be chosen by a few individuals rather than a majority of the class.
